In the Ubuntu Hardware Database client, we step through a user's
hardware and ask them about how it is working. Perhaps we could add a
hyperlink (or button to install the requisite packages/start another
wizard etc. etc.) on the relevant step of that client. I don't think
that we should start bugging normal users, but if the user is
interested in helping Ubuntu enough to submit HWDB data, they would
probably like to know that they could help nouveau with their card
